Helping your people, your workplace and your business to... shine!

Surf the Wave : Building Change Resilience (1/2 day)

We live in a world of constant change, regardless whether we want to or not.  We are surrounded by it - at work, at home, in society.  Sometimes change is our choice, other times it heads our way unexpectedly. 

Change impacts people differently.  Some embrace, others ignore, deny or resist it.  Being able to adapt to and navigate change quickly and positively impacts our wellbeing, productivity and effectiveness.  Resilience, the change muscle, is a learned capacity.  With focus and practice you can train and build the foundations that underpin resilience. 

Understanding how people transition from A to Z and the impact on teams is a powerful learning platform  for how your people individually, and collectively as teams, navigate workplace change and minimise team conflict.

We run impactful Change Resilience workshops that open minds, shift thinking and equip you and your people with the tools and knowledge to Surf the Wave of Change.

For individuals this programme is aimed at helping  you  to work with, and manage,  change more effectively, even where the change isn’t wanted.  For businesses, the outcome is a more responsive and change agile workforce – a workforce that is more able to positively deliver on business results in an ever changing business climate.

Is half a day too long for your organisation?  We can customise to suit your needs - for instance short, sharp training.
